Back To The Future: Romney, Pawlenty, Huckabee, PalinWith only one thousand-ish days before the 2012 presidential elections, the Republican field is brimming with talented potential candidates who can't wait to lose another election for the Grand Old Party.
No, no you're not having a Bill Murray Groundhog Day moment. This fresh-faced crop of Republican hopefuls features the same vibrant bunch of political superstars we saw in 2008, before that secret Muslim terrorist Barack Hussein Obama rode in on his high-horse of hope to steal the elections and ruin America.
Problem is Republican voters just can't decide which of these 2008 delights they like best: Sexy Alaskan princess Sarah Palin, Arkansas' adorable anti-fat crusader Mike Huckabee, or dreamy Mormon Ken doll Mittens "Mitt" Romney. As if that weren't hard enough, toss in Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty's hat into the ring and you my friend have yourself a royal Republican rumble not seen since '08!
"Republicans typically nominate someone familiar who's run for president before, such as Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bob Dole, and John McCain. But since the party appears to be in trouble right now, Republicans might want to do what Democrats typically do, and look for a fresh face," CNN Political Analyst Bill Schneider explained.
Eh, they'd much rather imitate the Democrats in that other time-honored tradition: Losing.
